MINING

We started a journey more than a decade ago. A group of hardworking people with a new technology that no one had ever seen. One that had the potential to change the way people viewed safety gloves. One that could change the lives of workers across the world. We started with one industry and one glove. We changed, altered, tested, and trialed until we began eliminating hand injuries for a few large companies. Eliminated – as in zero – none. That’s when we knew we were changing the landscape of safety forever. We grew and expanded from hand protection to arm, leg, and body protection solving century-old safety problems. We did this by working side-by-side with our customers, creating solutions where others couldn’t. When our customers started asking how we could solve other safety problems, we began to seek an innovative partner who shares our values, leads the market globally, and has changed the safety industry in the same way we changed hand, arm, and body protection. Today we’re proud to say we’ve achieved just that. With the help of an innovative German PPE partner – a global leader with over 90 years’ experience – HexArmo ® r is expanding our PPE portfolio to immediately include safety eyewear. This joint venture has allowed us to combine resources and address unsolved issues in safety eyewear through manufacturing, engineering, design, and technical expertise, creating the most advanced line of safety eyewear in the industry. Eyewear is just the beginning of what’s to come in a long line of PPE advancements from HexArmor. We look forward to continuing working alongside you, our customers, and bringing you groundbreaking PPE solutions that give workers the protection they deserve.

Because in the end, we aren’t just PPE. We’re the confidence, safety, and livelihood of those we protect.

® Wearability: The Key to Compliance ® HexArmor ® safety eyewear was developed as a natural extension of our core mission: to send every worker home safe, every day. To accomplish this, we knew the safety eyewear we designed and manufactured needed to be a product workers would want to wear – PPE that wouldn’t get in the way – because we all know the safest PPE is the PPE that’s worn. The best way to ensure that eyewear is being worn? Create a product centered on Wearability ® – which is the key to compliance. At HexArmor, ® safety eyewear Wearability ® is comprised of three main factors: Lens Technology The part of eyewear that gets little attention (but can have a significant impact) is the lenses. Proprietary LTX ® Lens Technology by HexArmor ® provides uncompromised optical clarity. This, combined with maximum impact resistance, makes our HexArmor lenses top class. Coatings Technology Not all lens coatings are the same. Typical dip coatings don’t allow the flexibility of anti-fog and scratch resistance to be applied on different sides of the lens. The flow-coating technique used by HexArmor ® allows this flexibility and outlasts all other eyewear on the market. Fit Architecture We take fit very seriously. Properly-fitting eyewear gives wearers confidence. It protects from dust and debris, is free of pressure points, is lightweight, and doesn’t slip. The right eyewear looks and feels good and is easily compatible with other PPE.

Proper protection with no side effects, this is Wearability. ® The result? Compliance.

Hydrophobic vs. Hydrophilic For fundamentally different coatings that outperform anything on the market while maintaining their performance over time, HexArmor’s chemically engineered anti-fog technology absorbs moisture droplets as they hit the lens, eliminating fog. This moisture absorbing process is known as hydrophilic and is found in all HexArmor’s anti-fog coatings. Taking this process one step further, HexArmor ® uses specialized dual- action hydrophilic coatings for extreme applications that cause moisture to spread on the lens and then absorb, eliminating fog permanently. Traditional coatings in the safety eyewear market use hydrophobic technology. This technology causes moisture to spread as it hits the lens, eliminating fog. Although effective for a short period, hydrophobic anti-fog coatings are detergent based and wash off over time. This type of short- term fog protection leads to compliance issues and eyewear being treated as disposable. Cleanability: HexArmor ® vs. Competitors HexArmor’s permanent anti-fog coatings outperform even the highest- performing competitors and ensure that the anti-fog properties of the lenses stay true to their nature, surpassing the ANSI anti-fog standard for the lifetime of the eyewear. Coatings

Hydrophilic vs. Hydrophobic

With hydrophilic coatings, moisture is absorbed into the coating, eliminating fog.

With hydrophobic coatings, moisture spreads across the lens, eliminating fog.

Flow-Coating Flow-coating is profoundly different than traditional dip-coating methods used by other safety eyewear brands. Dip-coating applies an identical coating to both sides of the lens and can sacrifice the quality of one protective property over the other. Traditional dip coatings can either be scratch-resistant or anti-fog. The combination of the two compromises the performance of each. Flow-coating technology has allowed HexArmor ® to pioneer four completely new coating combinations in the Americas that include permanent anti-fog on the interior of the lens and either a scratch-resistant hard coat or permanent anti-fog on the exterior of the lens. This specialized dual-coating process is exclusive to HexArmor ® and is a first for the PPE eyewear industry in the Americas. Multipurpose TruShield ™

These are just some of the mining applications and hazards HexArmor ® helped companies overcome with our industry-leading PPE solutions. Roof Bolting Roof bolting – sometimes known as top bolting – is widely considered to be the most dangerous job in underground coal mines. There is the ever-present danger of a falling roof, and roof-bolting machines used in this application create additional hazards. According to a study published in the Journal of Occupational Accidents, roof-bolter operators with less than a year of experience tend to incur approximately five times the number of accidents as more experienced operators. Mine workers who do roof bolting are exposed to falling rock, sharp edges from “pizza pans” and drill bits, and heat from drill bits. HexArmor ® worked with one of America’s leading producers of coal to find a solution to keep their roof bolters safe: the Rig Lizard ® 2021 and 2025. Applications

Conveyor Belts In almost all mining operations, high capacity industrial belt conveyors are used to transport ores throughout the mine or production facility. These belts require continual maintenance – a hazardous job for maintenance crews. Workers are often positioned on their knees, using two-handed box cutters or mill knives to slice thick belts of fiber and steel, pulling the blades directly toward them. HexArmor ® worked with the safety team at a major mining company to engineer a cut-resistant chap to protect workers from these dangerous blades. After introducing the HexArmor ® 9911chaps, the company was able to completely eliminate conveyor belt maintenance injuries.

Drilling/Servicing Mining companies usually work with contractors to perform drilling/servicing work, which involves pulling slips, working tongs, tripping pipe, and making/breaking connections. The heavy pipe and tooling used in these applications present serious impact hazards. In addition, some pipes, chains, and tools have burrs – so puncture protection is also a necessity. Grip needs vary depending on the contractor because each uses a proprietary lubricant. HexArmor ® offers a wide range of grip and palm dip options. We can help you provide your contractors with the right hand protection for the job. For drilling and servicing, we recommend the GGT5 ® and Rig Lizard ® Series gloves. These gloves provide high levels of cut, puncture, and impact protection with a range of grip options.

and Hazards

Truck Shop Fly Metal A common hazard in mining truck shops is fly metal, usually from changing out teeth on a loader. The metal used in the pins is not as strong as the pipe causing the pins explode and become shrapnel. Virtually the entire body is at risk of being pierced with fly metal, so truck shop workers typically wear leather jackets and chaps. The problem is these are hot, heavy, and smelly. Our customers found a better alternative: HexJackets, Aprons, and Chaps made with SuperFabric ® * brand materials. HexArmor ® is an exclusive licensee of SuperFabric ® brand material. SuperFabric ® technology provides the highest level of protection from fly metal in a product that’s lightweight, comfortable, breathes better, and lasts longer. General Mine Work Workers are exposed to falling rock, general cut hazards, and their job involves handling heavy tools. The Rig Lizard ® 2090X is the ideal all-purpose mining work glove and is widely used in mines across the globe. It’s comfortable enough to wear all day without causing hand fatigue, and workers like that it provides the dexterity and tactile sensitivity they need to do their jobs. It also delivers impact resistance to prevent injuries from falling rocks and pinch points and protects from cut hazards.

“HexArmor ® hand protection is far superior to any other glove I have used. Anything coming into contact with my hand was easily dampened by the padding, and that is a very big deal when nothing I work with weighs less than a couple hundred pounds.” - Jim M., Mining Engineer

Smash Injuries: An All Too Common Occurrence Falling rocks and heavy tools are a fact of life for mining workers. Consequently, painful smash injuries – which can be serious – are a frequent occurrence. Employers have made an effort to address this problem by including impact protection in their hand safety standards. Not All Impact Gloves Are Created Equal In recent years, “impact” gloves have flooded the PPE market. While some believe these are interchangeable, the truth is not all impact gloves are created equal. Safety Technologies and Testing

They offer varying levels of comfort, dexterity, and – most importantly – protection. Our patented IR-X ® technology shields gloves with a full Impact Exoskeleton™, so every joint and knuckle is protected. Gloves with HexArmor ® IR-X ® impact protection have been proven to reduce and even eliminate smash injuries on the worksite.

Impact Testing: ASTM D2632-01 Resilience By Vertical Rebound

HexArmor’s proprietary IR-X ® impact technology is proven to dissipate the force of sudden impact, smash, and pinch hazards. HexArmor ® has instituted testing using a load cell sensor. This tests both the amount of force transferred through the impact protection to the hand while wearing a glove, and the amount of time the force is felt. We have found strong evidence that our impact protection minimizes the amount of force felt through the glove, as well as lengthening the amount of time force is transferred. Together, these two factors help diminish or eliminate possible impact injuries. This testing, along with our high-flex design, is what makes it possible for our IR-X ® Impact Exoskeleton™ to deliver more comfort, more protection, and more dexterity than any other impact glove on the market.

Pressure Sensitive Film Impact Testing

In-House Impact Test Using Pressure Sensitive Film

More intense color indicates more force transferred through the impact guards.

In addition to the ASTM resiliency tests, HexArmor ® performs thorough field studies and in-house impact testing to validate protection levels. One of these lab tests uses pressure sensitive film (PSF) to measure the amount of force transferred through a glove’s impact guard in the event of a sudden blow. PSF is a highly- sensitive and extremely thin film that reacts to pressure by creating a high resolution “topographical” image of impact distribution and magnitude across the contact area. For this in-house test, the pressure sensitive film is placed under impact guards, and a hammer is dropped to simulate a worksite smash incident. After impact, the film is removed and scanned through specialized software to reveal the pressure distribution profile. The more intense the color, the more force was transferred through the impact guard. In the real world, this translates to a more severe potential injury. PSF results are highly accurate. In fact, the U.S. Army uses the system for designing their soldiers’ vests and body armor. This is just one of the ways HexArmor ® continues to be a leader in technology and innovation, redefining standards of safety in the industrial sector.

Cut and Puncture Resistance

SuperFabric ® Prevents Lacerations Workers are exposed to cut hazards on a regular basis as they are doing their jobs. HexArmor ® products with SuperFabric ® * brand material have a secret weapon against cut hazards that no other glove can boast. HexArmor ® is an exclusive licensee of SuperFabric ® brand material. SuperFabric ® technology resists lacerations and slashes like no other material on the market. Cut protection isn’t complete without puncture protection. The cut resistant materials commonly found in cut-resistant safety gloves – blends of yarns such as Kevlar ® or Dyneema ® – provide some level of protection from straight-edged hazards. However, they don’t offer sufficient protection from variable hazards such as metal burrs, wires, jagged rock, or slivers commonly found in mining environments. When a sharp corner, burr, wire “wicker,” or other protruding hazard comes into contact with the hand, it can penetrate the glove and scrape or cut the skin. With high-performance fiber knit gloves, the hazard will poke through the knit shell of the glove and tear laterally to create a laceration. Gloves that have cut resistance often lack the puncture protection needed to stop lacerations. HexArmor ® mining safety gloves are proven to protect against cuts and punctures. We test our gloves both in the lab and out in the field to validate their performance. Our data shows that HexArmor ® gloves deliver the highest degree of puncture and cut resistance performance. Most Lacerations Begin As A Puncture

Case Study Conveyor Belt Splicing: One Of Many Hazardous Mining Maintenance Tasks

Engineering the right type of PPE for mine workers and maintenance crews is critical in keeping ores and base metals moving efficiently and productively around the world. In almost all mining operations, high capacity industrial belt conveyors are used to transport ores throughout the mine or production facility. The belts in these conveyors are subjected to tons of rough ores and metals each day, and continually require maintenance to splice frayed belt pieces back together. Splicing is hazardous work for maintenance crews: one inch thick belts (sometimes constructed with fiber and steel) are sliced with hand-held knives before being spliced back together with steel staples. Maintenance crews are often positioned on their knees during these dangerous cutting operations and must pull knife blades directly toward them - not the most ideal work environment. Recordable injuries from deep punctures and lacerations are often serious - and in some cases, life-threatening.

HexArmor ® Engineered a New Level of Protection Against Punctures and Lacerations with the Development of a Dedicated Conveyor Belt Chap

HexArmor ® designers and engineers answered the call of a major mining company that had been experiencing a high level of recordable injuries (punctures and lacerations) in its belt conveyor splicing operations. After conducting an on-site review of the company’s maintenance operations, and working directly with the company’s safety committee, HexArmor ® engineered a conveyor belt chap designed to deflect the cutting blades and knives used in belt splicing maintenance. The result: belt conveyor

maintenance and installation injuries were completely eliminated after the introduction of the HexArmor ® chap.

Product Solutions - HexArmor ® Chaps 9911

The 9911 HexArmor ® Chap completely eliminated belt conveyor maintenance and installation injuries. The cut, puncture, and abrasion resistant 9911 chap provided mine maintenance workers with full front and back leg coverage plus a double-layer knee patch to reduce wear in specific splicing task positions. The 9911 chap was developed with extra room in the thigh area to offer easy movement and comfort, not to mention the chaps are cooler and lighter than alternative leather products. Another benefit is that the chaps are fully washable, lowering replacement costs and improving hygiene.

A GRIP for Any Task TP-X ® TP-X ® is a palm material that works well in oils and fluids because the surface does not absorb wetness, helping to maintain grip. Best for light to medium oily or wet conditions. Provides more abrasion resistance than synthetic leather, and some industrial puncture resistance.

Gator Grip Technology ® A highly specialized SuperFabric ® * brand material palm with PVC dots. The SuperFabric ® guard plates bite through and channel away lubricants, creating a “snow tire” effect that allows the user to grip oily or lubricated parts and tools. The PVC dots provide added friction for a tacky grip. Silicone Grip Durable synthetic leather palm with heat-resistant hi-vis silicone pattern delivers maximum grip and dexterity. Best for regular or wet conditions. Provides more abrasion resistance than synthetic leather. Synthetic Leather Our synthetic leather is the highest quality, so it’s extremely abrasion- resistant and durable and lasts longer than other gloves. Some products combine the synthetic leather with PVC print for enhanced grip capabilities. Mining companies and contractors have used this grip successfully for general facility and maintenance applications. TP-X+ ® TP-X+ ® is a robust, heavy-duty material that provides additional cut, puncture, and abrasion resistance and improved grip. The raised texture creates channels or grooves in the material, so it has enhanced grip over time. Also provides additional resistance to heat. HexArmor Mud Grip ® Synthetic leather palm with PVC dots. The surface wicks away lubricant, allowing PVC dots to create friction and improve grip on metal tools. Good grip in the wet conditions sometimes found in certain mining processes. Excellent dry grip for general tasks.

Palm Coating Dips

Sandy Nitrile Sandy nitrile provides a good dry and wet grip. It is lightweight, providing excellent dexterity. It also adds a high level of abrasion resistance. A good choice for incidental contact with unknown substances such as solvents, chemicals, oils, etc. Foam Nitrile Foam nitrile excels in wet conditions, and it offers excellent oil grip because of its porous properties. Oils are channeled away from the surface of the tool, allowing for more contact with the surface area, which substantially improves grip. FR-Compliant Coating Our FR-compliant palm dip increases snag and abrasion resistance and offers exceptional dry and light oil grip. Paired with a flame- resistant knit shell of 13-gauge Kevlar ® and wool, it can provide hazard risk category HRC level 1 arc flash protection: ATPV 7.7 cal/cm2, and contact heat protection up to 100°C (212°F). Polyurethane Polyurethane (PU) provides excellent dry grip that offers a balance between being tacky but not too sticky. It’s a lightweight dip, helping gloves maintain a high level of dexterity and tactile sensitivity. As such, PU is good for handling small parts. Wrinkle Rubber Latex Wrinkle rubber latex is a flexible, non-porous palm dip that provides excellent dry grip. It offers good wet grip, but is not recommended for use with hydrocarbon and organic solvents such as gasoline as these can cause premature degradation. This polymer may cause allergic reactions in some people. PVC/Nitrile Premium PVC nitrile blend is often used in gloves designed for liquid and certain chemical resistance. It is an effective barrier against water and most watery solutions, such as detergents or diluted acids. Because PVC is 100% synthetic, it contains no latex proteins and is hypo-allergenic.
